8 (1 1/2-ounce) sourdough bread slices, cut into 1-inch cubes (about 8 cups)
3/4 cup (3 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided
2 1/2 cups 1% low-fat milk
8 large egg whites
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard


1. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add sausage to pan; cook 5 minutes or until browned, stirring to crumble. Drain.

Pour milk mixture over bread mixture, tossing until bread is moistened. Arrange bread in a 13 x 9–inch glass or ceramic baking dish coated with cooking spray. Cover and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight. Uncover and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup cheese.

3. Preheat oven to 350°.
